Yep boys and girls...it's friggin' snowing again!!! Apparently I was very bad in a previous life and all this snow and cold is my punishment. Is it too late to say I'm sorry??? If not, I'M SORRY...now bring on the sunshine.
It's been a very quiet weekend and fortunately it seems I've recovered from the creepy crud...yay me. I didn't get to see Jumble Mash or LilSis this weekend but BigSis needed stamps so I drove the twenty miles to her work this morning to give her stamps...it seems I am the only one in the family that knows the well guarded secret of how to buy postage stamps :-) It was worth the trip just to see her and it won't be long before she moves (mid-April) and I won't get to launch these rescue operations for her :-(
I'm having a hard time with this whole "empty nest, the girls no longer need me thing". I keep telling myself that it's just another of life's many transitions and I'll adapt and move on...like there's a choice...but it just keeps gnawing at me. I fully understand that in some way they will always need me and that they love me but it's just not the same.
I'm extremely proud of the women they have become and have complete faith in their ability to make it in the world...and that's what I want...at least the rational part of me wants that for them :-)
Last night I was wandering around the house at a complete loss of what to do with myself. This is pretty unusual for me, I'm generally able to entertain myself with little difficulty. I've tried to keep myself busy today but now it's almost 8 o'clock....my domestic chores are done...and I'm feeling kind of disconnected.
Wouldn't it be great if the intellectual side of us could smack down the emotional side and save us all this grief!
